Edgar Danner, age 76 passed away Friday, September 6, 2019 at his residence. He was born July 11, 1943 in Vidalia to Hampton Edgar, Jr. and Kathleen Kennedy Danner and lived in Glennville all of his life. Mr. Edgar was a 1961 graduate of Glennville High School and attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Early in his career, he was affiliated with Danner Furniture Store. The furniture business was not his destiny in life. Following his calling toward the field of agriculture, he went to work with the Georgia Department of Agriculture where he served several roles and ultimately retired as a Meat Inspector. After his retirement you could find Mr. Edgar on his son, Al’s, cattle farm. This is where his life’s true passion was on full display. Countless times you would hear him say, “When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life”. Additionally, he was a member of the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association and attended the Glennville United Methodist Church. He is preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Cindy Gonski.
